Episode #5 – Jess’s Journey

In this fifth episode of the Just My Type podcast, co-hosts Sami and Dobie take a step forward and welcome our first guest, Jessyka McCaulley, onto the podcast where we learn about ‘Jess’s Journey’ as a type 1 diabetic and new mother.

Jess is coming to you from Rancho Cucamonga, CA (what Dobie says sounds like a salad dressing), where she shares her fascinating stories about both her diagnosis and shocking pregnancy journey. She offers practical tips to keeping a workable balance between being a mother and also a type 1 diabetic. Jess’s outgoing and charismatic personality towards diabetes and everyday life will have you engaged, entertained, and educated. She even just launched a small business company called, “Anti Insulin Insulin Club” where she creates artistic designs and products for diabetics to appreciate and represent. You can check her out on IG @diabetic_jess and @antiinsulininsulinclub.As Sami shares some sugar stats from healthcare professionals, Jess adds a surprising fact about one of the effects of gestational diabetes. Between Dobie, Sami, and Jess, you will learn all things diabetes related and be sitting right alongside them in this fun, yet informative conversation. C’est la vie baby!

Question of the Pod: Do you keep your diabetes devices in the same body part during summer or move them to prevent tan lines?
